The Orange You Glad You Helped a Kid fundraiser benefits local KidSport Canada chapters in communities served by Thrifty Foods stores.

“As part of our ongoing commitment to improve the quality of life in our communities, the in-store campaign will help hundreds of children join organized sport activities like soccer, hockey and karate in the next year,” said general manager Jim Dores.

“With a goal to send as many kids as possible into a season of sport, for the next three weeks Thrifty Foods will donate $1 from the sale of every four-pound bag of certified organic Buck Brand navel oranges to a dozen KidSport chapters in B.C.”

Until March 5, all donations will go to KidSport BC and to local chapters including KidSport Comox Valley — enabling hundreds of disadvantaged young people to access organized sport in their communities.

Thrifty Foods has been proudly supporting KidSport Canada through its Greater Victoria chapter since 2002. In that time, the organization has raised over $149,000 through the Thrifty Foods Kids Run (Victoria Marathon) registration fees and Thrifty Foods corporate golf tournament donations.

Thrifty Foods (www.thriftyfoods.com) was founded in 1977 in Victoria. Thrifty Foods, a banner of Sobeys Inc., has 29 retail grocery stores across the Lower Mainland, throughout Vancouver Island and Salt Spring Island.
